The winery is located in the municipality of Wiltingen in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. It is one of the oldest wineries on the Saar and has had a chequered development. The former monastery estate was run by the Van Volxem family for four generations. In 1993, it was taken over by Peter Jordan, who ran it under the name Jordan & Jordan. At the end of 1999, the estate was bought by Roman Niewodniczanski (scion of the Bitburger dynasty) and revived under the old name. He had previously studied economic geography and business administration. Large investments were made in vineyards with additional plots, buildings and cellars

The estate's own vineyards cover 45 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites of Braunfels, Gottesfuß, Klosterberg, Kupp and Scharzhofberg (Wiltingen) and Altenberg (Kanzem). A special feature are 120-year-old and ungrafted Riesling vines in Gottesfuß. They are mainly planted with the Riesling variety and the rest with Pinot Blanc. Another six hectares are cultivated in the so-called "Saar Riesling Project" by contract winegrowers who have to work according to strict quality criteria. Environmentally friendly viticulture is consistently practised with, for example, no insecticides or synthetic fertilisers.

The extremely low yields average only 34 hectolitres per hectare. The grape harvest begins at the end of October at the earliest and lasts until December. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with the vineyard's own yeasts, followed by lees storage in wooden barrels. Most of the estate wines are vinified separately according to site and offered as quality wines or fruit-sweet Prädikat wines. Two Rieslings are produced from the best sites, one from the entire area and a selection from the highest quality plots. The winery is a member of the VDP (Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates).
